This show is a completely under-rated classic! Matthew Malone is one of the funniest comedy sitcom creations ever and show go down in the books next to Cosmo Kramer and all the other greats. Mandy is hot and poor bloody Martin, what a sad tosser! Its a shame they stopped making this show cause I love it, my fave Matt was Benny from the first series but his replacement was wicked too. An all round great show and one of the best of the 90s. Gotta love the themetune too. If you dont know this show too well then go check out the re-runs.
